    L.A. Noire, which first launched for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in 2011, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and HTC Vive on November 14, publisher Rockstar Games announced.
    LA-Noire_2017_09-07-17_001-280x355.jpg
    L.A. Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A. The game was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival for its cinematic approach to gameplay and narrative. Utilizing a unique type of facial capture technology called Motion-Scan, L.A. Noire breathes unprecedented life into character performances, creating brand new game-play out of the art of interrogation.

    The Official Announcement by Rockstar is as follows:

    "Today, we're proud to announce new versions of the blockbuster detective thriller L.A. Noire, are scheduled to release on November 14, 2017 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Alongside these three new console versions, we're taking our first steps into virtual reality with L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, featuring seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for a virtual reality experience on the HTC VIVE.

    Set against the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is the story of decorated veteran and newly minted detective Cole Phelps as he investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A.

    L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from L.A. Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.

    L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.

    L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One delivers the complete original game and all additional downloadable content with a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more. Plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, these versions capture the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before."

    A really good sign for switch 3rd party support. And yes, I realize this is a port of a last gen game, but I couldn't care less. If this does well then there's a possibility of gtaV or red dead redemption for the switch. Now if we can just get Activision to port crash and make some other stuff and ea to make games other than sports games for the switch we'll be set :P

    The rumors way back when were true! LA noire is coming to Switch! This is great news!

    I think R* are testing the waters here with this game. If the switch version does good then i can totally see them releasing Max Payne 3 on PS4/X1 & Switch

    But the ultimate dream would be to see RDR or GTA V on the Switch

    Hell, actually talking about GTA, i would love to see that PS2 GTA Trilogy Pack revived and ported to the Switch OR i would like to have the GTA 4 Complete edition(which includes TLAD+TBOGT) released on the switch too. Both those packs would be guaranteed Switch system sellers!

    I am sure LA Noire on the Switch itself will force many to update or buy a 2nd switch. All i hope is that the port is good (this is rockstar we are talking about here so the port wont be shit) and that it sells well.

    Ohhh really nice.

    Now if they just release Red Dead Redemption on PC I'll be a happy camper.

    Anyways this is good news for the Switch, hopefully it sells well enjoy that other R* games come out on it like Bully or other GTA games.

    GTA 5 on the go :)

    I took only a brief look at this game millenia ago when it was released originally, but never played it myself.
    I don't think I will get it when it releases on Switch, it is not in my priority list and I still have a lot of backlog.
    But I might get it later on, perhaps after beating Xenoblade X 2 (and hopefully at a reduced price).
    And if they did release it on Switch, finally I will probably play it!
    I have it on my XB1 since a long time ago, and I only have played a little because lack of time... perhaps portability would make the difference...

    Not really caring about those console remasters and the Switch port.

    But heck, the VR version sounds interesting so far.

    Now if they finish all the exclusive 100 hour dlc Sony funded the dev cost for, i'd be real happy. TQH going bankrupt screwed the game over. I bought it on my ps3 knowing about the sony deal. anyways if they get all that missing content for it's big map finished, it will be a day one purchase. if not then its a 20 dollar bargain pin game

    ...WHAT?
    Out of nowhere, a sleeper hit from yesteryear makes its sudden debut on the current gen! Wow, did not see this coming at all. I really enjoyed L.A. Noire. Actually, I was just thinking about how nice it'd be to play L.A. Noire again and how great it would be taking it on the go with the Switch, and here we are!

    Listen, if you haven't played L.A. Noire, I highly recommend you give it a try! It's not a game for anyone, not by a longshot, and I don't know how dated it's gonna look in this port, but it's honestly a really good game and really captures its setting and mood very well. Check it out for yourself with this port!

    Honestly, I didn't expect to see a Rockstar game on a Nintendo console, but one thing is for sure, it's only been six months and we're already seeing a helluva lot more third party support than the Wii U had in five years :lol:

    The Switch is everything the Wii U should've been.

    I do wish the Switch focused more on a fixed console than being an hybrid. I like the Wii U design much better, but I expect Switch to survive longer too. Both beacause of strategy and branding.
